The Tomorrow Makers' Manifesto
Tomorrow Makers is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization, which means that the way we engage with each other is akin to an ant colony, a swarm of bees or a murmuration of starlings. We are committed to a singular outcome: the birthing of a new planetary social agreement, which serves all living creatures. Each Tomorrow Maker is trusted to contribute, learn, give feedback and maintain the growing network as a healthy, spirited forward-moving collective of Design Agents — change agents who create the future by design, not by default.
Gathered under the name Tomorrow Makers are individuals, communities, governing bodies, global and regional organizations, both profit and not-for-profit. Yet, ultimately each member is a responsible individual coming together in mutual learning and creation.
As Tomorrow Makers we honor our diverse heritage, share and give credit where credit is due. We understand we are creating something far greater than any of us, any organization or any network could do on their own. We continually create, experiment, document, and grow as community, as individual, as a better world in the emerging. We value feedback loops.
As Tomorrow Makers we realize we are richer with diversity, wiser with multiple ways of learning, gifted through ancient ways of knowing, inspired by imaginations and universal love.
As Tomorrow Makers, we do not invest our energies in debates or holding onto the old. We do not impose our belief systems. Rather we attract, we give rise to better ways, more thoughtful decisions and practices. Others join with us, to fulfill their unspoken, universal desire.
As Tomorrow Makers we divest ourselves of the old economy rules and regulations and build forward, creating new ways to share with a transcendent understanding of abundance that we all believe in and strive for.
As Tomorrow Makers we explore, push the boundaries, fail, practice, learn and enjoy each other's hunger to bring about the changes in hearts and mind for a future that serves all living creatures — a future without war, without poverty or slavery.
As Tomorrow Makers we willingly accept our grave responsibility and commit to actively taking part in designing the future. We embrace the challenge that will carry us through phase transitions to a healthy new paradigm, one that offers opportunities for right livelihood to every living thing.
As Tomorrow Makers we recognize that technology has been a hallmark of humanity’s evolution. We also know that technology has been guided by capitalists. We commit to a duty of care to steer emerging technologies into positive, life-giving directions.
We are cathedral builders in that we celebrate the shoulders we stand on, and give thanks to those who support us now, and those who will follow in our footsteps in future. Mutual learning is paramount in all our transactions.
I embrace the Tomorrow Makers Manifesto.
I am, proudly and fearlessly, a Tomorrow Maker.
